Excellent character creation, simple but thought provoking concepts.
Those expecting something like American Pie will be disappointed, its kind of more a movie for grownups.
Dramatic comedies are super hard to get right. Too much humor and the drama is overshadowed, too much drama and not enough laughs and the humor seems totally misplaced. The mix here, is really well done.
The humanity of everyone involved was awesome.
I was expecting a lot less, I just got watched it as a time killer and was so pleasantly surprised. In the same week I watched Jupiter Rising which was kind of the opposite quality.
Characters you didn't care about. A ridiculous plot that required all common sense being suspended.
